    Does it really work? Does it really improve your accuracy and is it worth buying? How long or how many have you taken before you notice any improvement? T

    I do know that shooting one eyed does make me 'hard of seeing' after a target or so.

    Holding the breath does cause fuzzy sight rather quickly.

    The pills??

    We May Need To Switch Terms

    Recent research reveals that some snake oils are fairly high in omega-3 fatty acids, which do have anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, true snake oil can give relief from some painful conditions.

    After all these years, we may have to reconsider this expression. ;)

    Pop always said your eyes use a ton of oxygen. I dunno, it made sense to me.

    I would be intrigued if it works, but my principle has always been to accept my abilities as they are without chemical enhancement. In college, I had friends who would take Adderall to write papers: It worked, they could write an 8 page paper in an hour, which then took me 8 hours to write the same paper. But I didnt care, because I assumed I had earned my grades, and they hadnt.

    But I dont want to be self-righteous. Heck, I wear glasses. Maybe my poor accuracy can be cured by vitamin pills! I mean, since it *isnt* technically a drug, its not really "medication". So yeah, maybe theyre not a bad idea.

    I refuse to buy a product from any company that tries to pass its advertisement off as an article. Pathetic and dishonest advertising is usually indicative of a pathetic and dishonest product.

    And I'll chime in...

    If it doesn't have double-blind testing, with a significant-sized population, showing an increase in efficacy over placebo, then I'll stick with whatever does.

    Too many outfits take advantage of the "dietary supplement" bit.

    i wouldn't take some pill as an improvement on a skill. i'd rather improve skill the old fashioned way, with practice.
    besides, i really don't see how it really works. skill is dependent on a lot more then just your physical abilities.

    I've been taking oxycodone for wisdom tooth removal and have seen a ridiculous improvement in my shooting. I can hold my air pistol I practice with perfectly still. What was the stuff they used in Vietnam? The North Hollywood Robbery? Something started with a "dex-"...

    Phenobarbital is what the North Hollywood Bank Robbers took.

    For every advantage gained there are disadvantages, too. Many people forget that. Taking steroids for muscle improvement is proven to work but health complications are also proven to be directly related.

    Call me old fashioned, but I see nothing wrong with practice, practice, practice if you want to improve at anything...

    For the long term health of the eyes it is important to take your vitamins and supplements especially lutein and zeaxanthin but Claroxan is horribly overpriced and it is much better to get your vitamins eating six servings of differently colored vegetables daily. These nutrients are found in the pigments of vegetables and fruits. If you want a better ocular vitamin go to www.maxivision.com

    This stuff will do nothing to improve your vision but it will help maintain good ocular health.

    eyes

    I had cateracts and was taking "eye essentials" with high lutien in it and other vitamins?.the doctor said it seemed to delay the cataracts and would not hurt to take.I know can see excelent but it was the operation.I do believe things work but you need the right things.:uhoh::confused:
    I do wish the medical profession would do an honest assesment on alternate treatments.the FDA is usless.

    Yea and "male enhancement" products will make your johnson bigger and you can buy the brooklyn bridge. If you read the ad I bet you'll find the statement "this product hasn't been approved to treat, cure or do a damn thing by the FDA". Its considered a food addative therefore they can say it'll do anything with no proof. SNAKE OIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rugerman
